  • I come from a long line of gardeners, both floral and vegetable. Any plant ever grown could not help but thrive under the care of my parents and grandparents and probably several generations back. Miracle Grow flows through the veins of my family!

  • Fall—just the thought of it brings visions of colorful leaves, cooler temperatures and wonderful Kentucky fall foods, such as sweet potatoes and apples. Not only are these foods delicious, but they are jam-packed with nutrients.
    Apples and sweet potatoes are two of nature’s great nutritional gifts, and even the wrapping is edible. They are low in calories, fat, and sodium. They are cholesterol free and are an excellent source of fiber. They also contain many of the phyto-chemicals that research shows may play an important role in preventing disease.

    Special to The Trimble Banner
    Trimble County Middle School Principal Mike Genton delivered a very interesting and thought-provoking talk about future middle school education to the Bedford Rotary Club on August 18. A major theme throughout seemed to be the importance of individualized learning now, and into the future.
    “We must meet the kids where they are, work hard for individualist learning, and take the kids where they need to be,” Genton said.
